Watch Charly Bliss & Peach Fuzz Cover Natasha Bedingfield’s “Unwritten” In Brooklyn

Staring! At the blank page before you! Open up the dirty window! Let the sun illuminate the words that you cannot find! Reaching! For something in the distance! So close you can almost taste it! Release your inhibitions! Feel the rain on your skin! Motherfucker, you already know what it is. I shouldn’t have to tell you. It’s goddamn “Unwritten.” It’s Natasha Bedingfield’s trans-Atlantic 2004 pop smash. Do you need me to tell you that “Unwritten” was the theme song for The Hills? No. You don’t. Just like you don’t need me to tell you that “Unwritten” is a cheat code for euphoric millennial mass singalongs. Last night, that song got the reception that it deserves.
